|6/7/2015||Cycle safe this summer
The sun is out and it’s warm outside, so why not dust off your bike and enjoy the beautiful countryside and towns that Surrey has to offer? But whether you’re a keen cyclist or novice, it’s important to take steps to ensure you stay safe on the roads, like riding centrally down narrow lanes, or remembering to cycle a door's width from parked cars.
If you’re a driver, please take a little more time to double check for cyclists when you’re turning at a junction and allow plenty of room if you need to pass them.
For more information on the cycle safety campaign visit www.drivesmartsurrey.org.uk . Drive SMART is a Surrey County Council and Surrey Police partnership initiative.
